Birdwatching in Himalayas Uttarkhand, India

The state of Uttarakhand, north of Delhi, is deservedly renowned for its natural beauty, the friendliness of the local hill people and the diversity of the flora and fauna.
Uttarkhand is a paradise for avifauna and a popular destination for birders from all over the world. Indeed almost half the species present in India can be seen in this region. It is also one of the best places in the world for observing birds of prey. Many of these birds are migratory. Because of this unique location the bird population is high throughout the year, with winter visitors, summer visitors, altitudinal migrants, passage migrants and local migrants. Some of the favourite birding spots are given below.

"Munsyari Valley "

Corbett Park, famous for its tigers, elephants and leopards, is also a bird watcher’s dream, with over 580 species. Nainital, the popular hill station, built around a beautiful lake, is surrounded by mountains and forest, where wildlife abounds and more than 500 species of birds can be seen. It is a notified bird sanctuary. Further afield can be found the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary, which is considered an ‘Important Bird Area’ by Bird life International. There are more than 200 species in the sanctuary, including Forktail, Blackbirds, Laughing Thrush, Kalij Pheasant, Nuthatches, Parakeets and Monal. Kausani, known for its tea gardens and Himalayan panorama, also boasts numerous bird species, including the beautiful Blue Magpies. No matter which birding trek you decide upon, you will enjoy the natural beauty and tranquillity of the Kumoan, spectacular views of the Himalayas and surrounding countryside.

We very much enjoyed four days of birding in the Nainital area sat-tal, Snow-view chaffi, Ramgarh etc. With our knowledgable, patient and kind guide Mr. Sunil Kumar. He planned a very organised trip, and all occured in timely manner .He patently made sure we had an opportunity to see the bird and watch their behaviour as time allowed, and we took time to photograph as well.

We have spent 6 days birding with Sunil. 2 on the outskirts of Corbett NP, two at Pangot and two at Sat-tal. Sunil was very good at picking up secretive birds and also know most of the calls. We enjoyed fantastic view of Cheer, Koklass, Kalij Pheasants, Hill Partridge, Plain-backed, Long-tailed, Scaly+ Tickell’s Thrushes and many others common birds. Our only disappointment was not finding Nepal Wren Babbler.

Thank you, Sunil for your birding company.

We are a pair of french mad birdwatchers used to travel by ourselves around the world to watch birds in Asia, Africa, and we few turn to guides. In our North-West India journey since mid-april 2015, we came to Pangot and Nainital area to watch thrushes, pheasants, and some local specialities as Rufous-chinned Laughingthrush.

We had few time to spend, not at usual time, in this place known in winter for thrushes, so we turned to Sunil Kumar, due to great testimonials on Birding Pals, and we were not disappointed.

Sunil knows very well his area and birds. He learns quickly what you expect. He knows what photography requires. On the ground he’s quiet and efficient.

We really enjoyed our time with him. He made good briefings of our driver, and optimized for bird-watching driving in all montane forest roads.

We’ll not forget him: as we discovered with him a Pied Thrush in a place unexpected for this wonderful bird.

And Sunil is very friendly. Our young boy, 8y-old, who travelled with us, but not specially interested in birds, nor English speaking, keep a pleasant recollection of Sunil as a wonderful friend.

Our only disappointment is to have visited Corbett without him, due to a disagreement with the agency and the hotel, and we are sorry for.

We not often recommend a guide, but we recommend Sunil !

Marianne & Thierry



Sunil has good eyes, a pleasant happy demeanour and is excellent on the various calls. I have used many birding guides over the years, and I am more than happy recommend him. In my view he is in the top tier. Thanks and best wishes for the future.
Chris Hancock, England.

We had a very good day’s bird spotting with Sunil, in spite of the rain. Sunil knows where all the good birds are and eyes like a hawk.
Andy Anderson and Ben Blewitt, AA Birding and Travel (Australia)



We spent an excellent morning bird watching around Snow View and Fairlight with Sunil. He immediately started finding interesting birds and took us on a wild path through the forest. He was very knowledgeable, not only about birds, but also pointed out all the peaks. Among the birds he showed us were, Black Eagle, Mountain Hawk Eagle, Brown-headed Woodpecker, Greater Yellownape, Rufous Sibia, Bar-tailed Tree Creeper, Streaked Laughing Thrush, Striated Laughing Thrush, Rufous-crowned Laughing Thrush, White-throated Laughing Thrush, Nepal House Martin, Long-tailed Minwet (to name but a few).

James Champion, my father, was a conservator of forests in Nainital in 1930-40. Personally I want to thank you for a wonderful birding experience, a lovely sunrise over the Himalayas and very interesting talks on the trails.
Nigel Champion, UK.

We came to Nainital from far away, not to honeymoon but to birdwatch. Had we not met Sunil by accident, we may not have achieved the purpose of our week long visit. Sunil was a great help in getting us to the few places where the hard to locate birds can be found. Sunil can identify these birds by their vocalisations before he sees them. We consider Sunil an expert birding guide and now also a friend. India can and should be proud of such a fine young man. Thank you Sunil, thank you India for your beautiful birds.
Birdingpals Alicia and Dieter Kamm, Sierra Vista, Arizona

Sunil has the complete set of everything that makes a bird Guide perfect. His knowledge of local birdlife (including call's, habitat,ages,sexes,etc.)is excellent for all species. His English is really top notch, he is personable, friendly, affordable,and very cool and relaxed. Sunil also knows about all the local' Furnies' (Mammals, Barking deers, Serow, Goral, Himalayan marten etc.). Above all Sunil is exeeding reasonably priced. You couln't ask for more in a birding Guide. He is by far best birding Guide, I have had in all of India (and I've been birding here for 5 months).
James Lambert (England)

October-2011 - Birding with Sunil and Pangot. After couple of hours with Sunil, it becomes quite obvious, that he is into birding passionately. This is one guy who is into birding, learning, reading, nature whether there is a client or not. He exists for birds! He can tell avian friends by their call & will ID the bird in one glance from a moving car. Polite & modest, Sunil is a pleasure to have around. He is an unobtrusive discreet guide, who works with typical dignity & poise of the mountain people. A few more like him and my country’s birds would in good hands. God Bless.
Rajesh & Ritu (India).

8.12.11 - Had a brilliant day looking for Pheasants and other birds. Sunil knows the area very well and knows the birds call. He got quite a few new birds, that I would not have found without him. I would recommend him to any birdes and bird tour company, who are looking for a guide in this area. Sunil is easy to get along with and speaks better English than me.
Rab Shand, Ornithologest, Scotland.

7.2.12 - Two special days, Special bird’s, Cheer Pheasant, Koklass and Hill Partridge. I must add that we had 2 very good days of birds. Sunil knows the trails where you can find some of the ‘Specials’. He willalso organize a car, so Nainital area will be stress free. Sunil is easy going and speaks good English and local language making easy to travel around. If you come around plesae take him to guide you.

February 1-10, 2013 I found Sunil Kumar on the Birdingpal Guides page and asked him if he could arrange a private 10-day trip for me through the Ramnagar–Pangot–Nainital area, which he readily agreed to, and we soon had dates, itinerary and cost worked out via email—which we followed without a hitch. Sunil is a very reliable organizer as well as an excellent birder and an extremely resourceful, hardworking advisor. Everything happened in its time and how it was supposed to, from my being picked up at my Delhi hotel to my return there ten days later.

I was immediately impressed at his generous personality and how personally he took responsibility for anticipating my needs and desires, right down to our tea stops, packed lunches, and hot water supplies, and for providing a maximal birding experience every moment. I am a rather indefatigable hiker, used to long days in the field, but Sunil led our expedition right to the end and was never ready to give up until I did. He is an outstanding birder; he doesn't carry a field guide, but he can tell you the page that the bird is on in the one you're carrying.

I soon discovered that Sunil has a broader knowledge of the natural and historical India around him than just the birds, as he also plans trips for trekkers and other sightseers as well as birders, and he was a wealth of information on many things we saw in passing.

Frankly, Sunil has become a friend whose pleasant companionship I already miss, and I think you will feel the same.
Charles Harper, Yokohama, Japan

We had the great pleasure of using Sunil as a guide for three days when bird watching at Nainital and area between 11th and 13th January 2013. We found Sunil to be a brilliant guide who really knew his birds and where to find them. His knowledge of the bird calls was truly impressive and helped us to enjoy many excellent sightings. Sunil’s ability is right up there with the best of bird guides. We have used many professional bird guides in various countries and found Sunil to be the equal of most and better than many and would thoroughly recommend Sunil as a guide to any serious bird watcher.

Furthermore Sunil was a very pleasant and likeable guide who spared no trouble in trying to find as many birds as he could. He had endless patience especially with me (Roly) when I could not get onto a bird. If bird watching in the Nainital area I would say use no other guide than Sunil.

This is an unsolicited testimonial and I would be happy to reply to anyone considering using Sunil’s service at birders(AT)adam.com.au
